Microsoft quietly released a new cumulative build for Windows 10 PCs and Mobile last night. The company released build 10586.242 for Mobile and 10586.240 for PCs to Insiders in the Release Preview ring. In case you are wondering what is new in this build, here’s the official changelog:

  • Improvements to general application compatibility.
  • Improvements in the upgrade experience, including fixing an issue where some devices would lose data connections or touch input after upgrading to Windows 10.
  • Improved the reliability of reminders.
  • Improved UI for tracking data usage under Settings > Network and wireless > Data usage.
  • Improved the navigation bar experience for some devices.
  • Fixed an issue where some SD card readers were not recognized.
  • Updated Daylight Savings in countries with Daylight Savings changes.

As per usual, there aren’t any new features in this build as this is just a cumulative update. However, with the latest update, the OS should feel slightly faster and it should also be a bit more stable. If you are part of the Windows Insider program and you are on the Release Preview ring, just open up the Settings, head over to Update & Security, and check for updates.
